Bernard Millot, Puligny MontrachetRegular price €87.00
A white-gold glassful, with aromas of hawthorn blossom, honeysuckle and almond, with flavours that build on those aromatics with hints of citrus, hazelnuts and fresh croissants.
Its supple precision in the mouth is a perfect balance of shaping minerality and the generosity of the very best Chardonnay, tapering to a long, elegant and fresh finish.
Emilien Millot is the fourth generation to manage his family estate, and the wines are aged in cellars beneath the original property in Meursault.
'Our philosophy…is to make wines whose character is dominated by terroir and the particular features of the vintage—for us it's instinctive, primordial.'
The wines of Puligny-Montrachet are among the most perfect expressions of the Chardonnay grape, and some of the most sought-after in the world. Quantities are finite, and the price always high—but these sublime bottles are a very special treat worth savouring.
